Guacamelee is the sum of Super Metroid and a Mexican-themed brawler. And, yes, it’s as cool as it sounds. So many of the map layouts, secrets, and abilities will remind you of Metroid, which is definitely not a bad thing. The game doesn’t try to hide this inspiration, either. You actually destroy Chozo statues for new powers. This is a silly game world that’s not meant to be taken seriously, though the numerous gaming culture references do get a little groan-worthy.
